The Review of Metaphysics


The Review of Metaphysics is devoted to the promotion of technically competent definitive contributions to philosophical knowledge. Not associated with any school or group, not the organ of any association or institution, it is interested in persistent, resolute inquiries into root questions, regardless of the writer's affiliations.

Address manuscripts and related correspondence to the Editor and all other correspondence to the Associate Editor. No material submitted for publication will be returned unless it is accompanied by return postage. The Review is unable to accept faxed or electronic submissions (e-mailed or on diskette), and contributors are advised to submit only hard (paper) copies of manuscripts for consideration. One copy is sufficient.

The 16th, revised edition of the University of Chicago Press Manual of Style is the Review's authority on matters of style. Contributors are requested to follow the Manual or a recent issue of the Review in preparing their materials. Style sheets for manuscripts, book reviews, and abstracts are available [n.b.: all book reviews (except article-length critical studies) and abstracts are by invitation only].
